Kitesurfing is a water sport that uses a kite (commonly called kiteboarders) and a board with or without straps (a support structure for the feet). The person, with the kite tied around his waist through a device called a trapeze, stands on the board, controls the kite with the bar, and in the water is driven by the wind that hits the kite. By controlling it, through a bar, you can move (push or take) choose a route, catch waves or jump. This relatively recent sport is in a moment of great popularity and growing practice in Brazil and around the world.
The kitesurfer uses several equipment, first a trapeze is placed around the waist, it is a belt with a steel hook and then connects the “bar” to the trapeze through the “chicken loop” (a handle with tweezers, which is part from the bar). and connected to the kite through lines (4 or 5, depending on the model of the kite). Depending on the model, the bar usually has 02 external lines and 02 internal lines, the first ones are connected to the rear edge and the others to attack. image, you can perfectly see the frame, the loop, the bar and the lines, the image does not allow to distinguish the trapeze, which is at the athlete’s waist.
